Tapenade Fish Stuffing – Garage Band Version

Ludwig loves to pan-sear or grill fresh fish, but ranted on and on about how boring the presentation is until he composed this little number. The tapenade base of this stuffing brings a complementary briny flavor to sweet fish like mahi-mahi, trout, snapper, cod and walleye. Use either to stuff whole fish prior to cooking or as a bedding for fillets.

Alternative to boring pan-seared fish.
